I'm not sure what "all other cases" are, I don't understand your answer :(
The policy manual says:
"All libraries must have a shared version in the lib package and a static
version in the lib-dev package. The shared version must be compiled with
-fPIC, and the static version must not be. In other words, each *.c file
will need to be compiled twice."
It says *must* everywhere, so I don't understand your "for shared vs.
static, this is not required, just compile both and split the package
regularly". I've looked at gdbm for example, and it does indeed do what you
call "all other cases" (except that it configures once and passes separate
CFLAGS twice apparently, which is fine by me).
In any case, since I'm one of the upstream maintainers of the package I'm
packaging, I just changed it so that it will compile both .o and .static.o
w/ different flags. But I'm still interested in clarifying your answer.
